As much of our industry is built around metal and machines, the shipping business has always relied on people to keep the supply chain moving. And it’s this human side of the shipping business that we do best.

We represent approximately 49 waterfront employers and, by extension, the more than 8,500 men and women who work for them. Our customer- members are ship owners and agents, stevedores, container and cruise ship terminal operators. We help optimize our members’ operations by adding our expertise in labour relations, safety & training, and recruiting.

BCMEA member companies are a vital part of the BC economy and a mainstay of the coastal community. Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, our partners move 60 million tonnes of goods worth billions around the globe every year. If you’ve got it, we helped you get it.
